Deprecate videoinfo
Open, LowPublic


videoinfo is a partial duplicate of imageinfo, which is just a really bad idea.

the only property it currently adds is "derivatives" (listing transcoded files).

Yes, this part of imageinfo/videoinfo is still crufty. I think that @Anomie agrees, that no one is really happy with TMH extending ImageInfo and then calling that copy videoinfo. It's just that no one has proposed a better route yet, and is willing to deprecate this oft used endpoint.

And yes, i'm 10 days behind in IRC pings ;)
